I’ve gotten myself into a mess. I have so much to do and so very little time to do it all in, that I’m wondering how it’ll ever get done. I’m feeling overloaded and overwhelmed, and I did it to myself. Although I’m excited about each project coming up (in sets of four–all due at the same time, and all to be followed by more sets of four), I didn’t realize what I’d done to myself until I sat down and updated my calendar. That’s when I discovered how many things are scheduled against each other.
This isn’t a job for Supergirl or Wonder Woman–it’s a job for Super-Secretary! If I could come up with some sort of heroine like that, she’d be sharp, focused. Have an eye for detail and a mind for logistics. She’d be able to plan a calendar that included all work projects, home events, and trips to Mom’s, that would effectively maximize the amount of things I can get done in the amount of time I have to do them and never miss a deadline or doctor’s appointment.
And she would know the answers.
Have you ever noticed that if you really want to know something, the best person to ask is the secretary?
I want someone like that.
I have projects coming up that I have no clue how to do. And while I have a network of people to help me, I hate to keep picking on them. Super-Secretary would already know the answers, and would probably have the groundwork laid before I had my first cup of coffee, which she would have already made and would serve it to me just the way I like it–bless her.
Right now, I’m typing on a new HP Pavilion x360 that I just set up yesterday. It’s not quite fully functional, but I did at least fix it to where I could work in my blog. My main computer is getting upgraded to Windows 10 so maybe Microsoft will stop giving me pop-up ads about the upgrade, but I wonder what I was thinking to let it upgrade this morning–Monday morning, the busiest time of the week because I have to make up for all the time I took off over the weekend.
Super-Secretary would have already set this computer up with everything I need and have the other one already upgraded. And to top it all off, she’d be able to tell me what would happen if I push that button or how to get this button to work like it does on the other computer.
I bet Super-Secretary would even know how to keep me from taking on more projects. I mean, seriously, why is “no” so hard to say?
The Lord has been warning me that MSB and I are facing some changes, both personally and professionally. Two major changes in particular. If He’s doing what I think He’s doing, I’m looking forward to them, but they’re going to require a lot of work on top of the work I already have lined up and a lot of time that will take away from the work I already have lined up. He knows this, so maybe He’s going to provide me with a Super-Secretary–or at least the organizational skills to become one myself.
Meanwhile, I’ll just see how much more time I can carve out for myself if I cut out sleep and meals.
